Jerry Eversole's Trial: The Winners and Losers

Jerry Eversole surprised a lot of people when he escaped conviction on bribery charges.

A hung jury ended in a mistrial, but prosecutors expect to take another swing at it soon.

In the meantime, everyone is poking through the wreckage of that first attempt. There were winners and there were losers, and no one better to hand out the laurels and raspberries than KPRC legal analyst Brian Wice, a regular winner of law-related Best of Houston® honors.

His take:
